1.) To do that, go to Start, Control Panel.
2.) Select Welcome Center.
That takes care of that!
Now, similarly, the Vista Sidebar is also shown by default. While some users will find the Sidebar and its widgets very useful, you may want to use that space on your desktop for something else. If that’s the case, you can turn the Sidebar off. Here’s how:
1.) Go to Start, Control Panel.
2.) Right click on the Windows Sidebar icon in the system tray.
3.) Choose Properties.
4.) Uncheck the “Start Sidebar When Windows Starts” checkbox.
5.) Click OK.
That’s it I hope many of you can get some good use out of this one!
